Malawians inspire Chipembere Queens

The Chipembere Queens have been inspired by arrival of two Malawian internationals in their camp, as they brace themselves for the new season. The Queens, who returned to supreme women football action this season, after they were relegated in 2012, believe the skills of their new acquisitions Carol Ahoviwa and Billy Chimwemwe will make them a more formidable side.

“We have just completed the signing of the two Malawians, who each join us on a two-season contract from Malawian women football giants, Kings FC, said Brightwell Kadenge, secretary-general of the Women’s National Soccer Super League outfit.

“In the trial matches they played, they were fantastic. The forwards are really full of skill and their value will soon be felt by every opponent we meet.”

He said the duo had already merged well with the youthful squad assembled for the coming season. “This time we will rely on a squad dominated by players aged 16- 21, who are full of energy, so the vast experience brought by Ahoviwa and Chimwemwe should add depth to the team,” added Kadenge, who declared that “Great things lie ahead for us this season.”

In the opening three matches of the season, the Queens were unbeaten and lay second on the 14-team log with 7 points. They opened their campaign with a 1-0 victory over ZRP Harare before they collected another point against Tenax FC in a 1-1 draw in Mutare In last week’s encounter, they dismissed Bulawayo giants, Baro Jets, 1-0 at their favourite hunting ground, Mkoba Stadium, which was full to capacity.

“Sponsorship is what is becoming a thorn in our flesh at present. We are a community team and we struggle to find money to foot our expenses, especially those involved in traveling to away fixtures. If there is a corporate or individuals who can help us, we would really be grateful,” appealed Kadenge.
